When I was driving home on the 401, I was looking off in the distance and saw this house reflecting the sunset off of all but one window - a good hint that it was abandoned. I decided to drive down the side road it was on and was quite happily surprised with what I discovered.

I'm not really sure what's going on with this place - clearly, no one lives here, but it looks like the barn may be used for storage.
It also seems like they were in the process of demolishing the place, and just gave up for whatever reason, or they're trying to salvage materials as the place falls in on itself.
Or... rather, I came in the middle of the demolition. I can't wrap my head around why they were destroying such a beautiful home, though. It doesn't make sense. Plus it was done in a very strange way.. uploaded a gallery of the demolished result. Not the best lighting but you can get the idea.

Gutted houses are ones that I'm most cautious exploring, so there aren't any pictures of the upstairs. Last thing I wanted was to fall through the floor - and it seemed likely. Wish I risked it after I saw the place in a pile of rubble though!
